Default New wheel for robo?

Hi! I'm aware of some of my options for an 8" wheel but honestly I trust everyone's opinions here a lot so it won't hurt to ask for some advice. I ordered an 8" trixie wheel from amazon in January but it's now slightly broken to where it still runs relatively okay (a bit wobbly) but its very loud now, and it's in my room. Does anyone have any particularly recommended wheels for a roborovski? I'm definitely not looking for anything smaller than 8" and probably no bigger than 8-9". Also any advice for keeping a wheel unburried in a bin cage would be appreciated lol, he loves to dig in his wheel for some reason
(kaytee bedding) and I'm just worried that he digs it in early in the night and then can't run on it for the rest of it. Thank you!

My robo's wheel is in his sand pit which is on top of a Ferplast guinea house for support. I left the front panel of the house out so he can burrow in it. This works really well for him.

Another option is this in my dwarf's bin cage. Again the support is a Ferplast guinea pig house and the wheel is sitting securely in a bendy bridge.

The trixie wheels can be pretty poor & get very noisy, I would recommend either the Rodipet wheels which are very good or the silent runner (not silent spinner!).
I just make a simple shelf for my wheels, a piece of wood for the platform & short dowels (you can get those on ebay or amazon) for legs painted with plastikote as all my hams pee in their wheels.
